Hello Aine, There is a fair deal of evidence to suggest that catastrophism may be the norm rather than uniformitarianism on the planet. Immanuel Velikovsky and others have suggested this. Megafauna and dinosaurs may have thrived because of different atmospheric conditions that may have occurred rapidly over and over in the past. Evidence points to Native Americans in this country being the ones who are claimed to have had very large rulers. Although there are many Native traditions of an ancient enemy that was portrayed as Giant, malevolent and Caucasian, physical evidence is scant. Is it possible that royal bloodlines were kept in place and eventually died out? This is what many Native people would say. Comparative mythology paints a different picture of the past that includes Giants, Little people, ancient floods and cataclysms and an advanced ancient civilization. We investigate these ideas and I must say that Graham's new book Magicians of the Gods makes a very sane and reasonable case for some of these notions having a basis in reality. W. J. Holland was a paleo-anthropologist and head of the prehistoric anthropology department for the Carnegie at the turn of the century, he reported unearthing an 8 to 9 foot skeleton at the Mckees Rocks mound site I believe in the 1890's. I would like to see if Holland made any specific measurements or took photos. Thanks for the reply
